I tried posting this in the ACPS link but didnt have a password.
I have been interested in pod surgery for the past five years and have spent numerous clinical observations sitting in on surgeries and consultations.
I undertook my masters program as a step towards undertaking pod surgery 3 years ago and am half way through completing it.
In my recent discussions with pod surgeons on the eastern coast of Australia I have learnt that at present there is very little chance of being taken on as a registrar due to the current commitments undertaken by surgeons servicing VIC, NSW and QLD.
I currently live in NSW and in the forseeable future cant see many opportunities in being taken on as a junior registar.
Is this the same in other states? would moving interstate improve my chances of pursuing a surgical career?
